Phoenix Contact new PSR mini

PHOENIX PSR

Phoenix Contact’s new PSR mini relays are the narrowest safety relays in the world with force-guided contacts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having a width of just 6 and 12 mm, Phoenix PSR mini offer the same performance as a large safety relay. Thanks to the newly developed relay technology from Phoenix Contact, the highly compact design is possible. With its combination of unique features, PSR mini has been specifically optimized for use in machine building and the process industry.

Your advantages:-

  • Thanks to the compact design and maximum flexibility of the safety relays with force-guided contacts, space savings up to 70%.
  • Thanks to innovative relay technology from Phoenix Contact, maximum safety and high switching loads of up to 6A.
  • Thanks to global approvals, access to all relevant markets.
  • Thanks to the installation of safe coupling relays directly in Ex zone 2, simplified creation of distributed concepts.
  • Thanks to fine-grained architecture with one enabling contact or more, modular configuration of safety concepts.
Highly compact PSRmini safety relays with force-guided contacts

Highly compact PSRmini safety relays with force-guided contacts

Phoenix PSR mini is the new generation of safety relays and the range comprises of 28 products in 6 mm and 12 mm versions. Despite the narrow design, thanks to comprehensive approvals and much more, the products offer maximum performance: they switch loads of up to 6A, are compatible with many signal transmitters and safety-related controllers and are versatile.

The compact design quickly pays for itself, as numerous signals can be processed in a confined space, thereby utilizing the space in the control cabinet to optimum effect. The fine-grained architecture makes a modular design of safety concepts possible: the 6 mm version is available with 1 to 2 enabling contacts, the 12 mm version with 2 to 3.

With PSR mini, you save on space and gain flexibility, without the need to make compromises in the application.

Groundbreaking new relay technology 

Phoenix Contact’s centrepiece of the new PSR mini device family is the relay technology developed by them. Just 6 mm wide, the elementary relay with force-guided contacts impresses with its numerous technological details and is as reliable as safety technology should be.  It is its robustness, reliability and diagnostic capability that sets it apart from a standard elementary relay.  All individual parts of the relay are manufactured by Phoenix Contact to ensure high production accuracy and to meet their stringent quality requirements.

Classic safety functions, new safety concepts

In addition to the low space requirements, the new PSR mini safety relays offer the following advantages, particularly in the field of machine building.

There is a complete range, compatible with many signal transmitters such as emergency stop equipment, safety door switches and light grids.  Thanks to the provision of just one enabling contact, they have a modular structure of safety functions.  As well as comprehensive approvals for global markets, the contacts are force-guided for maximum safety levels up to PL e according to ISO 13849 and SILCL 3 according to IEC 62061.

Full SIL3 performance in potentially explosive areas

Phoenix Contact’s PSR mini coupling relays are used for signal amplification and electrical isolation in conjunction with the outputs of a safety controller. Adapted to the relevant process control systems, the new product range offers SIL-certified coupling modules for safe deactivation (emergency shut-down) and safe activation (fire and gas).

In addition to reduced space and material requirements, PSRmini offers numerous other advantages:

  • Shorter down times during scheduled maintenance phases, thanks to simple, fast diagnostics directly at the device or the controller.
  • Use of safe coupling relays in potentially explosive areas for the simpler creation of distributed concepts.
  • System cabling using customer-specific Termination Carriers for fast, error-free startup and connection in the field.

Phoenix PSR-MXF multifunctional safety relay

Phoenix PSR-MXF safety relay allows you to implement three safety functions such as emergency stop, safety door or light grid monitoring.PSR-MXF

The advantages, compared with using three safety relays, are:-

  • pre-connected safety functions means fewer potential wiring errors
  • lower expenditure on warehousing and logistics
  • two thirds less space required

There are four versions of Phoenix PSR-MXF device with screw, spring-cage or tool-free push-in connections with which to monitor different types of sensor.

Phoenix PSR-MXF safety relays have three sensor circuits which can each be wired with single or dual channels:

  • A higher-level sensor circuit S0
  • Two local sensor circuits S1 and S2

The local sensor circuits S1 and S2 each provide a standard function such as a safety door or a light grid. When a fault occurs, both sensor circuits can be reactivated separately.

The higher-level sensor circuit S0 monitors both local sensor circuits. If it is triggered, the safety circuits protected by S1 and S2 are switched off.pic_con_a_0058653_en

 

The advantages of using Phoenix PSR-MXF:-

  • your cost advantage using just one safety relay instead of three
  • space saving in the control cabinet thanks to the low housing width of 22.5mm
  • no software configuration is required so easy maintenance and startup
  • push -in connection means short installation time

Phoenix Contact goes mobile

Phoenix Contact has introduced a new app for configuring and printing marking material using your smartphone or tablet.phoenix mobile

First you need to log into Google Play on a PC to check the compatibility of your Google registered device and if it is, you can use the new Marking System App on your android smartphones and tablets with Bluetooth connectivity.

The great thing about this app is no prior knowledge of marking material is required, the search assistant will filter the options for Phoenix Contact and their competitors DIN rail terminal markers.  On top of this, the product scanner can conveniently and quickly call up all possible marking materials for your application.  All you have to do is scan the barcode on the packaging of your Phoenix  Contact product to be labelled.  Also included within the App is wire, equipment and plant marking.

Having selected the appropriate template via the material editor, you can edit adding the required text or symbols.  Once you have completed your template, you can save as a file and archive within a named folder.

You can then print your jobs easily sent via a wireless data exchange to either the THERMOMARK card or roll printer.  This has to be upgraded with the addition of the MINI FD BLUETOOTH, Phoenix article number 0830986.
